    If they dont have any 3g? My phone is Verizon, but I want AT&T. Do they sell some sort of mobile hotspot thing that I can hook up to the iPad2?

    The phone should be able to hotspot or wirelessly tether. Depends on the phone. Once u decide what phone u want, let us know and will be able to give more details on it. That's what a lot of people do now, forgetting the 3G version of iPad and getting the wifi only version then tethering it to their phones. Saves u a ton of cash in the short and long term. I tether my win mo phone to my iPad and wrks flawlessly. When I'm at home, I use my com cast high speed wireless network.

    I have the Droid 2 with Verizon. I dont want to get a new phone, just curious if AT&T sells something similar to Verizons MiFi that I can use for the iPad 2?

    Thanks so much!

    You should be able to tether you D2 with the ipad2 via VZW's tethering. Look for an app called 3g Mobile Hotspot in the market place.

    I haven't used it on the D2 but it is a program via VZW. I did use it on my Droid X with my iPad. I did pay VZW's tether option on my plan though, so it's not free but works great!

    Good Luck

    Geoffthedad,
    Do you buy 30 day buckets like ATT 3G iPad plans?
    I'm going to be using my Inc for a hotspot but if if ends at 30 or so I'm going to wait until I need it vs trying it out now. My wife has one with the ATT 3G so I'm familiar with how theirs works, just wondering if mobile hotspot with Verizon works the same.
    Thank you

    Mark, I have turned the wifi hotspot on and off through VZW customer service line for short periods of time. IE: 3 day trip, call and get it active. When I get home, I call and cancel it. Then I get billed a prorated amount for the month. It is truly a month to month deal. No contract with it.

    Enjoy tethering legitimately!
